THE Asian Institute of Management (AIM) and Manchester Metropolitan University (Manchester Met) have teamed up to launch a new postgraduate degree program that focuses on financial technology (fintech).
The MSc Financial Technology (MSc FinTech) program is an eight-term, part-time hybrid course that provides students with an in-depth understanding of fintech's innovative and unconventional approach.
The program is set to commence in January 2024, with hybrid synchronous classes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and all-day Saturdays.
The course duration is 24 months and is designed to address the potential skills gap brought about by the accelerated growth of the fintech sector. The course aims to equip the next generation of fintech professionals with the skills required to meet the growing demand for fintech expertise.
The MSc FinTech program is tailored to professionals who work in banking and finance, technology, retail, consumer goods, investment, wealth management, startups, and government.
The course is also suitable for business owners looking to take their businesses to the next level.
Graduates of the program will receive a dual award from AIM and Manchester Met, which reflects their field of specialization and certifies that they fulfilled the stringent requirements of both institutions.
AIM is the first school in Southeast Asia to be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), while Manchester Met is a triple/crown accredited university, having received accreditation from AACSB, the Association of MBAs (AMBA), and the European Quality Improvement System (Equis). These accreditations are a testament to the quality and effectiveness of the institutions' programs, including the new MSc Financial Technology (FinTech) program.
